Life's Thresholds

My dear friend and confidant Peaches has crossed the doggy threshold of her rear end giving out. This is not good.

She is unable suddenly to get up and down and she is having accidents. This just started a few days ago.

I know the signs but just for today I am in denial. Gigi will take her to the vet this morning for an evaluation.

On a brighter note Gigi will soon cross her own threshold and turn 50. I have been telling her that now is the time to cut off your hair and get it styled to look like a gaseous planet.

Or I ask openly…”Hey…I wonder what its like to have a roll in the hay with a 50 year old woman?”

She replies, “Oh shut up or I’ll whoop your ass.”

Oh by the way General Motors….take it like a man and file bankruptcy. You have a failed and outdated business model. Enough begging for money to stay alive.

Reorganize and come out competitive. Make something I want and I will buy it.

It's sad when dogs reach that age. I hate having to make the big decision.

Heading for 50? I hope you trailblaze a good path for those of us following close behind!

I am so sad to hear Peaches isn't doing well. Seems like yesterday she was a puppy playing tug of war with a sock.

P.S. It is about time GiGi turned 50! But She is as young looking and as pretty as ever though. No fair.

Poor Peaches. I'm sorry you're having to face this time in her life. It's hard, I know.

I love Gigi's reaction to your teasing. You better be careful or she'll haul off and smack you!

Oh, poor Peaches. It's always hard seeing pets get like that...

I'm sure a roll in the hay with a 50 year old woman is pretty sweet - not that I'll ever experience it, lol!

"whoop your ass" huh? grin. I didn't know you were in to that kind of thing, Wreg...

Hope said...

damn...forgot to tell you. Sorry about your puppy...we lost ours last year. It's still weird without her.

Sorry about Peaches. I still feel bad about not saying goodbye to her when we were heading out for an adventure, so she followed me out the door, and waited until I acknowledged her.

I can totally hear Gigi warning of the ass whoopin'. She and Ali are cut from the same mould!!

Sorry about Peaches,
always tough stuff!
An ass whoopin sounds like fun, I think I'll ask Bic!
